This study is conducted to investigate the thermal stability of a reactive Hydromagnetic Poiseuille fluid flow through a channel. It is assumed that the reaction is exothermic under different chemical kinetics: Sensitized, Arrhenius and Bimolecular neglecting the concentration of the material. The analytical solutions of the nonlinear dimensionless equations governing the fluid flow are obtained using Adomian Decomposition Method (ADM) together with Pade Approximation technique to determine the thermal stability of the fluid flow and important properties of temperature fields including bi-furcations and thermal criticality conditions are discussed.
